Hidden Mickey Monday ºoº - Rusty Radiator Springs Curios Hidden Mickey

Lizzie's Radiator Springs Curios in Radiator Springs - Cars Land

There are hundreds of odd items and knick knacks in Lizzie's ecclectic shop, Radiator Springs Curios in Cars Land. Inspired by actual souvenir shops located along Historic Route 66, the Radiator Springs Curios facade is decorated with hubcaps, license plates and rusty signs.

Looking for a sign? Mickey is hidden in front of Radiator Springs Curios in Cars Land.

Although the Cars Land gift shop is inspired by real places, WDI's Imagineers added the Disney touch by sneaking in Disney Details, Pixar Secrets and Hidden Mickeys. The left side of Lizzie's storefront features one Hidden Mickey, mixed in with Cars Land license plates from places like Rollingstop, New Suspension and Torqueville.

Head over to the end of Lizzie's porch, past the window with the blue neon Route 66 sign. Rust has eaten away the yellow paint on a sign marked PUMP, creating a very unique Cars Land Hidden Mickey.

Hidden Disney Details - Buena Vista Street Mailboxes

There are dozens of Disney Details to discover along Buena Vista Street, Disney California Adventure Park's newly remodeled main thoroughfare. Hidden in a private entryway next to the Los Feliz Five & Dime is an apartment-style mailbox.

The nameplates on the personal mailboxes feature a few familiar names with Disney ties. From left to right the names read; S. Yoshiwara, E. Valiant, T. Ogelvie and P. Peabody.

The S. Yoshiwara mailbox is a tribute to Staci Rei Yoshiwara, a Disney fan and former cast member who passed away before Buena Vista Street's completion.

"This name is dedicated to a good friend and former Disney cast member who passed away during the creation of Buena Vista Street. Being a fan of Disney and knowing she'd never get to see Buena Vista Street, I felt it was only fitting she'd always be able to call it home."
- Brandon Kleyla, WDI Set Decorator

Bob Hoskins plays Eddie Valiant, who receives his mail directly from the postman - Who Framed Roger Rabbit © Touchstone Pictures

E. Valiant - Eddie Valiant from Who Framed Roger Rabbit (1988). Valiant was the circus clown turned heroic cop, who then turned into a drunken detective after an evil cartoon dropped a safe on his brother. Eddie was played by real life actor Bob Hoskins, who starred alongside the animated Roger Rabbit. A bit too sexy and risque to be a traditional Disney feature, the Academy Award-winning Who Framed Roger Rabbit was released under Disney's Touchstone Pictures.

T. Ogelvie - Theodore Ogelvie, was Don Knotts' hapless character from Walt Disney Productions' The Apple Dumpling Gang (1975) and its sequel, The Apple Dumpling Gang Rides Again (1982). In the 1975 box office hit, Knotts teamed with comic actor Tim Conway, who co-starred as the dimwitted Amos Tucker. Together, Theodore and Amos were a pair of inept outlaws, bumbling their way through the Wild West.
